You can take Sensoform tooth paste for sensitivity control. You need restoration or caping or rct or extraction of your sensitive teeth (for permanent treatment). Green tea is not harmful.
Hi, Sensitive teeth can be due to a number of factors like 1.Erosion 2.attrition 3.abrasion 4.Caries 5. Traumatic injuries to teeth 6. Amelogenesis imperfecta 7. Dentinogenesis imperfecta 8. Other idiopathic problems All these have their own elaborate reasons, factors, etiologies and treatment options. Which can be discussed with a dentist and a proper diagnosis must be made. For the short time being you can use anti sensitivity tooth paste. But a better result can be achieved by various treatments present with the dental doctors.
Brush correctly avoid acidity n acidic drink like cola too much of tea use hydent k tooth paste twice daily especially at night
All the sensitive toothpastes are the same. Technique matters more. 1. Don't use then daily 2. Never use brush with them 3. Use only in sensitive areas 4. Take little on your finger tips and apply it for atles 30 sec 5. Leave it for half an hour 6. Rinse your mouth 7. Repeat it 3-4 times daily 8.not more then 7 days 9. Always followed by normal brushing 10. It's not a substitute for brushing, it's supplement.

Green Tea can be safely taken. You should be mindful with acidic food items and definitely take antacids if you have acidic regurgitation. Switch to any anti sensitive toothpaste for 2 months with extra soft toothbrush.

Precisely, you have to get the treatment for cause of erosions (GERD, carbonated beverages, etc.) along with dental treatments like capping of severely damaged teeth due to erosions and use of R R sensoform toothpaste (others less potent can be used whichever available in your area- sensodyne, thermoseal, thermofoam, zerosense, enofoam etc.).
